A Blunder or Worse . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
A Blunder or Worse . Commissioner Sparks , of the United States General Land Office , has again taken a step not liked by the homesteaders . Fortunately some fourteen or fifteen counties of Dakota only are affected by this last decision . But the Commissioner now suspends all surveying contracts in the Turtle Mountain District , affecting a tract of 10 , 000 , 000 acres and settled by 20 , 000 people . Commissioner Sparks presumes that Secretary Teller was in error and , that the question of the Indian title should be submitted to Congress . Perhaps we may be permitted to presume that Sparks has stirred up another hornet s nest . They may not buzz from Minnesota , Iowa , Nebraska and Kansfts quite so noisily and fiercely as they did under his other suspension . But they will make themselves both heard and xelt from the Bismarck and Grand Fork districts of Dakota . Why should they not ? It is no small thing rudely to disturb 20 , 000 people in their title to their homes . It does not...
Landlord Tax on Marriage . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
Landlord Tax on Marriage . The Great British Landlord Scully , in Illinois , only practices the same principles in a small way as the Duke of Devonshire in Ireland . One of the means used by the agent of the Duke is that a tenant s son or daughter shall not marry without the consent of the Duke s agent or of himself , under penalty of _ eviction or rent-raising . In practice , it is carried out in this way : Thomas Leahy , Bishopstown ( Ballinaspick North ) , forty years since held farm at yearly rent of £ 32 . Being lonely , took a wife , and was fined £ 8 per annum . In time gave farm to daughter on her marriage , and she was further fined £ 5 per annum . Husband having died of a broken heart , widow remarried , and fined another £ 5 . Present rent £ 50 . James Spillane present tenant . •
Live Stock Interests in Congress . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
Live Stock Interests in Congress . The representatives of the National Cattle-Growers Association have found a better reception in Washington this year t jan last . The discussions in the newspapers of pleuro-pneumonia and like questions , and the intelligent action by many different delegate bodies , and particularly the plying of members of Congress by their own constituents who have shown that they were dead in earnest , have secured a respectful hearing to any proper representatives of live-stock interests . May we not hope this will be followed by some thorough examination of the facts presented and the enactment of practical measures ? Among the points made by President De Witt Smith , of the Cattle-Growers Association , in a memorial to the Agricultural Committee of the House , are the following : Cattle from the United States have to be slaughtered at ports of entry in Great Britain , thus cutting off the American exporters from trade with interior butchers and grazers , man...
Opening the Big Sioux Reservation . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
Opening the Big Sioux Reservation . This was attempted last year but failed . The railroad companies desired it . The Government favored it . A Commission was appointed to confer with the Indians and gain the requisite consent of twothirds in accordance with the treaty . The Commission reported the terms of the agreement they claimed to have made with the Indian tribes interested . But after considerable investigation and some lively discussion , Congress refused to ratify the proposed agreement and pas s the bill to divide and open the reservation . Why ? An answer is given in a communication on another page , from one who has for many years lived in that region . It is gratifying to know , that not all that great railway companies may wish to do can they always accomplish in their own way and at their own appointed time . Iu this instance , evidently , the Interior Department , also , was allied with them . But though the ultimate purpose of constructing roads through to the Black...

What and Where are They ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
What and Where are They ? The cheap railroad lands of Minnesota , about which so much has been written , are situated in Southwestern Minnesota and Eastern Dakota , aboutSOO miles from Chicago . . Considerable of the original tract has , of course , been sold , but what is left is located right in the midst , and is n part of one of the richest agricultural regions in the world . The soil is wonderfully rich and deep . It is well watered , and general , stock and dairy farming have proven by experience to be unusually successful . The land that remains unsold is nearly all within five or six miles of the Chicago &amp; Northwestern Railway , so that no trouble is had in securing ample markets for all farm products . The land can be bought of the railroad company in tracts of forty acres and upwards , at prices ranging from $ 4 to $ 10 per acre , according to location , with large discounts for cash . For the benefit of those who are not able to pay all cash for their land , t...
A Just Ass ( Justice ) . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
A Just Ass ( Justice ) . Some Chicago magistrates are queer fellows There is a law against gambling , and lately the police of the city , m a paroxvsm of honest duty , arrested about 200 nersons in the most notorious gambling house of the city . They were taken before a justice , and he fined them $ 1 each , which the head gambler paid . Dr . Kittridge , a well-known Presbyterian divine who sometimes preaches on municipal matters , called attention , in a sermnn latelv . to the iniquities of gambling , and censured Justice Meech . The justice ( rot mad , and is alleged to have sought redress in the courts . What is the department of justice for anyway ? To suppress crime ? Can it be done by fining gamblers $ 1 each when caught ? Hardly 1 Why then , the irate indignation of this dispenser ? Is not the common magistrate amenable to public opinion ? Is he not elected to prevent crime ? Is . not open gambling a crime ? Why make it simply disorderly ? Why , also , then this appeal to the...

Wisconsin Farmers' Convention . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
Wisconsin Farmers Convention . Continued from page 161 . PBE 8 IDENT CHAPIN , OF BELOIT COLLEGE , read a well-considered paper on Underconsumption , which he held to be synonymous with over-production . An important suggestion was , that it is better not to be too hasty in stopping production , and so throwing into disuse capital and labor , but rather to develop civilized wants and desires and a well disseminated means of gratifying these desires and so increase the general consumption and the demand . PROF . MORROW , OF ILLINOIS AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY , who was welcomed to his old home by numerous friends , gave two addresses , which were remarkably well received . Speaking of the necessity for the farmer constantly to adapt himself to changed and changing conditions , he had an opportunity to contrast old and new methods and to emphasize the necessity of keeping up with the improvements of the day . Here came in very naturally the desirability , not to say necessity , of educati...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 February 1886
A LESSON . A little elbow leans upon yonr knee . Your tired knee that has no much to bear ; A child s dear eyes are looking lovingly From underneath a thatch of tangled hair . Perhaps you do not heed the velvet touch Of warm , moist fingers holding j-ou so tight ; You do not prize tho blessings overmuch—You are almost too tired to pray to-night . But it is blessedness ! A year ago I did not soo ibas I do to-day . Wc are all so dull and thankless , and too slow To catch the sunshine till it slips away . And now it seems surpassing stonge to me That while I wore the badge of motherhood I did not kiss more oft and tenderly The little child that brought mo only good . And if , some night , when you sit down to rest You miss the little elbow on your tired knee—This restless curly head from oft your breast , This lisping tongue that chatters constantly ; • If from your own the dimpled hands had slipped And neer would nestle ou your palm again ; If the white feet into tho grave had tripped...

YOUNG FOLKS . GRANDFATHERS VALENTINE . Out in tho sunshine golden . The pomegranates glow , _ With waxen cups vermilion ; The roBcs are in blow ; Betwixt the dusk mngnolias , I see the redbird B wings , . And in tho swaying live-oaks A merry mocker sings . The orange- trees are budded ; The jasmines hang with gold ; And ncath tho solemn pine-trees , Sand-1 ilies white unfold . But oh , my hearts beloved , My little love , my dear , It seems like dreary winter . Because you are not here ! Yon have my heart , my darling , Up in the land of cold ; Ami with you is the summer .

It has been months since there has been even a rumor of In ,- dians ; and though the patrols , guns on shoulders , still pace abou...
